June 20th - September 30th
The gallery will donate its percentage of the sale proceeds to two associations active in the 'front line' helping and supporting activities in the LGBT world.
The association carries out virological tests anonymously, safely, quickly and free of charge, at LGBT headquarters and premises.
Post-diagnosis consultations, awareness campaigns, vis-a-vis consultations and seminars.
The first temporary shelter for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people who have been mistreated or kicked out of their families.
June is the month that marks the start of the LGBTQI+ pride season and this year it will be even more special with the launch of the first Global Pride (27 June).
For the occasion, the FMB Art Gallery is organising in its events section
" PRIDE BY YOUR SIDE - ART for LGBTQI+ ", an online art project in support of the LGBTQI+ world, which will be available for the entire duration of a hypothetical Pride Wave (a site that collects all the Pride dates in Italy).
The COVID-19 emergency has had a devastating impact on Pride events, many of which have been cancelled or postponed to dates to be set, this does not mean that Pride has been cancelled, on the contrary, the call for the "PRIDE BY YOUR SIDE" project joins the many online events organized to celebrate LGBT pride and be close to the movement. The proceeds from the gallery for this event will be donated to two Italian LGBT associations: Casa Famiglia Refuge LGBT and PLUS.
The theme of the project concerns the LGBT world and aims to highlight the pride of the diversity of each individual that is manifested in the intimate relationship we have with ourselves and the outside world we are living in. The artists have received key words to work with and express themselves:
pride, identity, uniqueness of the individual as a reflection of their inner and outer world, love, sex, sexuality.
Words that question our deepest self but also love and sex as an expression of themselves.
The event wants to tell the PRIDE in some of its aspects:
Pride of being as you are.
Pride to stand tall because beauty lies in diversity.
Pride of being free simply to love.
